Where you live should not have anything to do with service!! Broadband postcode lottery!
VM is the result of many mergers and aquisitions but has been a private company from day 1. So why is it just as much at fault for failing to expand its network?
BT was handed the network from the GPO for relatively buttons and therefore in my opinion has an obligation to provide the people of this country with a level of service. Instead we are provided with a complete substandard service. Just look how far behind USA we are and look at the size of the country!!
At the time BT was created from the GPO there was only the telephone network. No such thing as broadband.
I think the improvements BT have made to the telephone network are outstanding.
With regard to broadband, I think with a little deeper research you will find that the population of huge swathes of the USA would kill for what we get through BT. Or the competition between many different retailers here - it's take it or leave it in the bulk USA as I understand it.
I will grant you that BT could do far better than it does wrt broadband. I just take issue with the comparisons you make.
